Hi doctor,

I am 21 but my weight is just 40 kg which is too low according to me and my family. Everyone says I am too slim. So, I just wanna gain my weight now. Would you please suggest which capsule will be better for weight gaining?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Well, your BMI is less than the normal and you are surely slimmer. First of all, I would like to tell you that there is no need to take stress on this issue. You are beautiful the way you are. I will help you improve.

Follow this advice.

1. Eat five times a day, small but frequent meals.

2. Drink milk two times a day.

3. Increase the intake of bananas.

4. Exercise, at least for 15 minutes a day.

5. Megace (Megestrol Acetate) oral suspension, 800 mg/day (20 mL/day) will increase your appetite. Take 10 ml in the morning, 10 in the evening.

Keep an eye on your bowel habits as well, stay happy.
